Description

The Bachelor of Environmental Science and Management incorporates knowledge from a wide range of fields including biology, ecology, chemistry, and geology to understand human impacts on the environment and to develop ways to address these problems. When you study a Bachelor of Business you will establish a firm understanding of the contemporary business environment and undertake studies in a range of disciplines, from international business to tourism.

A combined Bachelor of Environmental Science and Management/Bachelor of Business (BESM/BBus) degree allows students to undertake and match business skills with their interest in Environment and Sustainability, a synergy that will raise awareness of commercial and entrepreneurial opportunities in the environmental space, and maximise graduate employability.
